Tesla’s Gigafactory Continues To Grow (New Images)

April 4th, 2017 by  


New images of the Tesla Gigafactory have been obtained from the air by the surveying firm NM Group — which was reportedly getting a handle on potential pathways for power lines in the area for an electric company. The new photos make one thing clear … the Gigafactory is growing rapidly.

Have a look:

Things certainly seem to be coming to life at the site (which isn’t surprising since production began there a little while back).

Mashable provides further background on the images: “[NM Group] was recently mapping the area for potential power lines on behalf of an electricity company, according to Tim Hustwayte, a senior client manager based in the United Kingdom. The route took them close to the Gigafactory, and they got some shots that appear to show the factory having bulked up since Tesla’s battery cell began rolling off production lines at the start of the year.”

As we reported recently, employment numbers are continuing to grow at the site as well. The Gigafactory will reportedly end up supporting much higher employment numbers than were originally projected.

So … here’s yet another sign that seems to show Tesla’s plans are continuing to come along nicely.
